Webinar introduction

In the current Clinical Trials Directive, the definition of conditions for inclusion of vulnerable populations is limited to clinical trials with minors and incapacitated adults who are not able to give informed legal consent. Released in April 2014, the new “EU Clinical Trial Regulation” (EU Regulation 536/2014) expands on information given for the above populations. Additionally, it also goes further and defines the conditions, especially the informed consent process for clinical trials in pregnant and breast feeding women as well as in emergency situations. Although, the objective is to harmonise the performance of clinical trials in Europe, certain opt-out options for Member States are foreseen and thus might lead to exclusion of certain countries from some trials.
